Well photographers have the same bragging rights. Sometimes, like me we even can provide proof, sort of.
This is my fisherman-like tale.
After many days of boring, flat, cold dead winter light I was anxious to find something worthy of shooting. One morning I rose before dawn, dressed and headed out in hopes of catching the sunrise.
I'd checked the time table and new what time the sun would come up, but I was late. The sun really lights the land long before it rises above the horizon. I figured that out on my way to the planned destination. There wouldn't be enough time to reach it, so I went to plan B.
The sunrise itself is a worthy vision, but it becomes so much more interesting when there's life included. This morning I almost had that wonderful silhouette of a horse, except the horse didn't cooperate.
By the time I got set up he was on his merry way to the other side of the hill where the grass was obviously greener!
He got away.
